A Good Show
I really enjoy Suspense. However, there are some shows I don't care for. These are the "morality" episodes network standards required every few shows to keep this show from corrupting the nation's youth.
It's okay for a story to have a moral, but it's easy to tell when the story was written with the purpose of showing that crime doesn't pay. Those episodes have lower quality writing and generally predictable endings.
I do appreciate the shows that were written with the point of telling a good story.

Great Short Stories Made Suspense
Authors still write great short stories but there's hardly a good paying market for them, if any market at all. Maybe community cable productions or YouTube. Suspense was comprised of such great short stories. I especially like Gene Lockhart in "Statement of Henry Wilson." He was perfect for it, bringing a bit of his characterization of the humble clerk in the classic film A Christmas Carol. This time with retribution though. Elsewhere on Suspense I especially liked "Subway Stop" written by Arthur Zigouras. In all, Suspense had a way of getting you into the story immediately then hooked you with music, sound effects, characterizations, direction, and above all the story.

Three Times Murder, Suspense Radio
Super voice and great actress, Rita Hayworth in this radio episode. Her ability to make 'live' her acting is a superb account of true acting. It would be great to have reproductions of Suspense Radio theater for television!

Suspense - THE BEST
From the haunting theme to the well told stories this fantastic series will, at its best, transport you to another time and a place of imagination. At it's worst its entertaining and evocative of place fading from memory. An absolute treasure !

A true classic
Given the era in which it was produced (mono recordings, no fancy digital sound effects, etc.) these stories are absolute classics. They don't make stories like these anymore!
